Title: Almond Cakes
Yield: 28 Servings
Categories: Desserts, Cakes, Low-Fat

Ingredients:

1 c Blanched almonds
1 1/3 c Sugar
1 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Rose water; (optional)
3 Egg whites
Vegetable cooking spray


Place almonds in food processor, and process until finely ground. Add sugar
and flour; process until blended. Add rose water and egg whites; process
until well-blended (the mixture will be very thick). With floured hands,
shape the dough into 28 balls, and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets
coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 325 degrees for 28 minutes or until crisp on the outside and soft
on the inside; cool on racks.

Yield: 28 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie).

The original version of these cookies called for 2 cups of almonds. We
replaced 1 cup with flour for a healthier, but still delicious,
alternative.
